Large osteolytic skull tumor presenting as a small subcutaneous scalp lesion.J Am Board Fam Med. 2011 Nov-Dec; 24(6):763-7.JA
Subcutaneous nodules of the scalp are common and usually benign. We describe a case that presented as a probable inclusion cyst or lipoma of the scalp that was discovered to be a benign osteolytic fibrohistiocytic lesion of the frontoparietal skull. This ultimately was successfully treated by neurosurgery with a craniectomy, tumor excision, and reconstructive cranioplasty.
